What sides to serve w/ a french dip? (Posted on 3/26/13 at 9:32 am)
The inlaws are coming to town tonight. Im making roast beef french dip poboys (a pic thread will happen when the meal is complete!!). What kind of side would you do with that? I have fries as a backup but im looking for something a little more out of the ordinary. Ideas?

I like the mushrooms or roasted veggies ideas. A good slaw is a good idea, also. A marinated veggie salad would work. A cup 'o roasted veggie soup. A watermelon, tomato and onion salad or a tomato, onion and avocado salad would be good. I'd include a little fresh fruit with whatever for some fresh flavor on the light side. Could be by itself or very lightly tossed in some poppy seed dressing. Let it sit and the fruit juices with mix with the dressing. I did that a few weeks ago and it was really good refreshing with the meal. Sat it on a bed of fresh baby spinach and arugula.
